World Fish Migration Day 2016 (WFMD) is a one day global initiative, with local events worldwide, to create awareness on the importance of open rivers and migratory fish.
It is a World Fish Migration Platform activity and is held to improve the publics’ understanding of the importance of open rivers and migratory fish and their needs.
The concept of WFMD is that organizations from around the world volunteer to organize their own event around the common theme of: CONNECTING FISH, RIVERS AND PEOPLE. By working together, under one worldwide umbrella, we can improve our impact on raising awareness/ sharing ideas/ securing commitments/ building communities. In doing so, we can ultimately create a greater driving force, which will allow for easier management/ conservation/ rehabilitation of migratory fish stocks.
